Solskjaer: Why I failed at Cardiff

Manchester United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained why his first managerial stint in the Premier League proved to be a disaster.

Since being parachuted in as a replacement for the axed Jose Mourinho, United have embarked on an impressive run of form that has seen the club collect nine wins in 10 games to reignite their hopes of a top-four finish and qualification for the Champions League once again.

His run of form since taking over at Old Trafford is in stark contrast to his last time in charge of a Premier League club with Cardiff when he lost 12 of his 18 Premier League matches in charge as the Bluebirds were relegated.

And detractors pointed out to his appaling record in his first managerial stint in the English top-flight as a reason to doubt his long-term suitability to lead The Red Devils.

“It wasn’t the right decision, to be fair,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “But you live and you learn.

“This is a completely different club and situation to come into,” he added. “I know the culture and identity of the club and the playing style.

“Manchester United, of course, suits me a lot more than a club that struggles towards the bottom of the table.

“I wasn’t ready for that fight. I didn’t say I wasn’t ready for the Premier League. That’s different.
